+Kevyn Winkless +Jeffro Johnson - Eric Flint calls for the Hugos to be abolished because they are no longer relevant. 

"But I personally think the best solution, if there is one at all, is to scrap the whole existing set-up. Of all the awards handed out for literary merit, the only ones that seems to maintain any sort of ongoing more-or-less objective relationship to the real world are those given out for often broadly-defined achievement. They’re not awards given out for “best XYZ of year ABC.” Instead, they are achievement awards handed out for a body of work, that may be anchored to something specific but takes other considerations into account, and perhaps most importantly is not tied to an annual cycle."

It's an excellent essay (I don't agree with that conclusion, but even so). 

I rather liked Mercedes Lackey's comment: "I’m content to be a good hack."

Some great tips about how to deal with climate change deniers .......

Blimey. SGPlus even adds the old-style Facebook feed to Google Plus so you never need to go to the over-complex Facebook page again.

Okay, last try tonight (or should I say this morning) to do the dual posting on Google+ and Facebook!
